The Raveness was born Siân Lavinia Anaïs Florencia Valeriana, a partially deaf native of Shakespeare country who after becoming smitten with her distinct prominent Warwickshire accent became acclaimed by eager auditors at turned age sixteen as “a ground-breaking performance poet,” predestined for one growing in the legacy of William Shakespeare and more. This praise for her pre-eminent potion of diverse multilingual spoken word, music and sound effects of the avant-garde was subsequent to an introductory single – A coffin for a bed (2002) - released under - The Raveness - a sobriquet gifted by an acquaintance that now remains the pseudonym for her mixed heritage orthonym of exceedingly protracted proportions. Two years waved the diarist and autodidact musician, writer and historian amidst the villainy of further psychosomatic terror and farther coerce from a formal diagnosis of an absinthe addict, an alcoholic who had acquired a taste solely for la fée verte. At seventeen she released the equally highly successful self-titled - The Raveness - EP (2004) - in the same year that she was terrorised out of higher education and chose the path of an antiquarian to fund her future, today still on going. This record unveiled the teen as a self- taught composer of keys, a specialist harpsichordist (from virginal to double harpsichord) only those who heard her now rare cover of Yo Ho! A Pirates Life For Me (2000) were previously aware. Never receiving any classical training and inventing an exhilarating approach to the genre. Daringly still and always world renowned for over a decade as the original artist pioneering with her signature distorted combination of harpsichord and organ, depicting the claviorganum in heavy resonance, admired for presenting her art through the nostalgic essence of a gramophone. She also is a self- educated player of strings but taking preference for that she specialises in, seldom uses them as the main instrument in her recordings. By nineteen years battling with cancer, valiantly the girl with the complex personality disorder who has been keeping history and private journals since childhood self-published the repeat sell-out book of poetry – Lavinia volume one (2006) - a collection of verse written from as early as age six tastefully asserting others of the consequences caused by the diabolical vileness of domestic, emotional, psychological, sexual violence and mental illness married with varying historical verse. After a plethora of singles and extended plays the attention shy artist released her first full-length feature – Of blood and absinthe (originally recorded between 2002 and 2012). This release saw her now sober and returning to frolicking with the green fairy but as a percussion constructed of the spirit, sugar, spoon and glass – an additional first for anyone – coining the recording of the prologue, emerald blood a poem scribbled in her diary at fourteen and its popularity has become one of the many reasons for her self-published independent and intentionally underground success to date.
